The Sun, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Sun is beaming. Reminding us to share our own light. She emanates her radiance from the center to all four corners of the card where the birds continue to carry out the spirit of the sun. The four birds represent the four directions, the elements, and the four suits of the Minor Arcana. Every aspect of this card is blessed and shining with deep reverence for all that is. The spirit of this card is gratitude, grace, full vibrancy, complete trust in life, and oneness with all.

.::.

There is nothing hidden in The Sun. All is brought to light with radiance and abundance vibrating in every cell of ones being into the far reaches of all the galaxies. The sun is you, filled with a fire that is shining through all obstacles as you continue to do what you love and play with passion. This warm energy that you are moving with is not only nurturing the seeds you are planting, but this energy is also being shared with others as you go. Everything you touch at this time is turning into gold. Why? You aren’t doubting each step you are taking, you embody full fire blazing a unique way in the direction your heart pulls you toward. There is no safety here and this doesn’t seem to sway you or dampen the spirit that you are. Life has really shown you that you can fully trust and do not need to worry. You are taken care of more than you can possibly comprehend now.

.::.

Hopefully, in this moment you are screaming yes to life. The Sun is inviting you to her warmth, to say yes to what lays dormant within that wishes to be expressed. We came in human form not to deny our earthly existence, but to play and enjoy while we are here! What are ways that you are not allowing yourself to play, and what ways do you wish to investigate within yourself and discover? The Sun card says whatever excites you most, put your attention there and allow yourself fully to give yourself to this expression. There is not one soul in the entirety of the universe who can express in the way you can. There is nothing to compete with and nothing to lose. We all are bursting with unique gifts that are just waiting for us to say yes. If you have already said yes, this is deeply felt…you are already doing what you know is in complete accordance with your flavor of being. The Sun Card is full energy. Do not deny this energy now when it is dripping from your sweet skin. Allow yourself to express this creative love and focus this energy in the direction that is most alluring to you.

.::.

Your life will be flowing with great ease with The Sun Energy. All your endeavors, serious or playful, will be fluid and energized. Everything is unfolding in simplicity. Even as challenges come, there isn’t a mental pressure you add on top of the challenge. This makes for a great flow for all that you are currently involved. Even when chaos comes you are light and can handle what once seemed stressful and erratic. There is an abundance of light emanating from you that has no time for bullshit. You are creative, energized, excited, and feel tremendous joy for life. The Sun, may also be reminding you to soak up the rays outside in nature and allow yourself to get in touch with that warmth and relaxation she freely gives you. Nature is a simple and profound way to get in touch with ones being and to move in life gracefully. Nature has absolutely no resistance to what is and reminds us to keep exploring what we are naturally attracted to.

Two of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Two of Wands is the action that springs forth from the initial idea and energy of the Ace of Wands. In Two of Wands one will be moving with a steady momentum towards visions and goals that are in alignment with the heart. One is no longer daydreaming about this vision, but actively watering the seeds each day. There is an energy moving now that intuitively knows the path that is being walked is the one that has been waiting to spring forth from the being. This is why there is sustainable energy here and not energy that will dissipate after a short time. Two of Wands is a deep exploration bringing one to a depth that will expand through the vision one has embarked on. This exploration on your creative vision will stretch the being outside of oneself in the way that this creation is not just satisfying his own personal wishes but also inspiring others to embark on what also sets their heart on fire. This is the juicy effect of love 😉 Walking fully in the naturalness of being is blooming in the way of a flower. There is no other way but for the flower to bloom, just as the person must play out what is in the heart. This is the will of the divine.

.::.

Something within at this time is feeling expansion. This could come to be through school, traveling, creative endeavors, reading, or anything in you that is ready to open or stretch in a way that is ready to blast open. One is finding that life is showing when its time to expand and when its time to nurture seeds. No methods are needed for ones expansion. Like a flower this is naturally occurring. Now is the time that Two of Wands says yes go on that trip you feel called to take! Research that topic that you have been wanting to get into! Go explore the creation that has been poking at you to uncover! All of these clues are coming now for you to expand and they are intertwined with what you are creating. This will push you to an even deeper compatibility and connection with the vision and goal you are currently working on. As one works in present moment love, the word “work” falls away and all becomes a love making with life.

.::.

There is a vibrant energy in the Two of Wands that is inviting one to drop any and all things holding one back from doing what is in true alignment. It is an invitation saying your goal or vision that you are now embarking on is the opening to a much larger portal. One is only breaking open to the majesty of creation. The Two of Wands says you are outgrowing yourself quickly and life is now rearranging itself for expansion. There is nothing one must actively do to expand. There is no practice that can make this happen. Life is naturally moving and expanding within all beings, like the plants are growing we do the same. One doesn’t need to force any type of growth because we learn and grow at the precise times we are meant to. All is unfolding in a divine perfection, it is only the mind that believes otherwise and attempts to interpret, therefore mistakes the divinity of what is for what one thinks should be. All that is allowing us to be here in this very moment is because all has happened exactly as it has for life to give birth to who we are. Two of Wands has magic in store for one to expand through creative work and asking you to follow this flow, allow it to be, and allow the sincere work to come through.

Seven of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Seven of Pentacles represents heartfelt action, work related or creative one has been investing sweet energy and time and energy into. This can go from early stages of thought process into the action of the process. Either way, there has been an amazing flow of loving energy with this endeavor. It is time to pause and reflect on what has been accomplished thus far. Sometimes we forget how much has even bloomed because we are so into the project we cannot see how much we have actually accomplished. It is good to remember that even a giant yes in a direction that feels in complete alignment is a really big step. It is not to be discarded because one has not yet seen fruits of this new direction. Look closer, you will see fruits if you zoom in a bit more. There is already momentum underway if you have said yes to something that feels absolutely in alignment. Whether one is in the new idea of the work, a few months underway, or a year engaged in the process, take time right now to really see how far you have come. Sometimes what can happen now, is a hint of doubt because one has not seen full fruits of this dance. Remember, zoom in again and take a deeper look. The invitation with the Seven of Pentacles is, if what you are working on is in alignment with you…then keep going. When you work with present moment love this is what you will always be met with. Life is mirroring this to you in every moment with what vibration emanates from inside.

Seven of Pentacles invites the investigation of other aspects of ones life. Is any area zapping energy that could be invested in your work/project? Take a moment to think about this. What areas are you playing in that don’t necessarily feed you sweet energy? When we see where we are leaking energetically, we can simply choose to stop investing that which is no longer serving us. There are things we do each day that are either empowering us or draining our energy. Allow yourself to be honest and transparent. Give yourself the opportunity to turn this into more energy for what you love and what serves your heart. This can be anything from friends that drain you, food/habits, work that no longer serves, thought patterns, or whatever it is that is zapping you on some subtle or gross level. As we realize what drains us and allow that to fall away we are automatically telling life that we are ready for more beauty and love. Life responds and mirrors us in profound and immediate ways when we allow to fall away what doesn’t serve our highest good. What serves the highest good is very different for each individual human. This is why judging ourselves or others on what is the highest for each one is completely unknown…until its known. We do not know what others need on their journey and sometimes we don’t always know what we need, we are all navigating according to present moment perspective. We have the freedom to allow others to explore and for us to explore as well. The more open we are to this exploration and open to moving in the direction of our heart, the easier we will find to listen to the subtle ways our being wishes to move. We extend freedom to ourselves and others when we allow all to fully all to be as they are.

.::.

Seven of Pentacles is a reminder to naturally move in the present moment with full love in whatever direction is naturally calling. Know that when you move in this way you cannot go wrong because anything that comes through you is in accordance with the harmony of the universe. Modern day society is built around linear time, how fast one can accomplish, and how to please the status quo. None of these things are natural to our being and quite frankly the universe doesn’t really give a shit about that. We all work at different speeds and we are all learning lessons we need to along the way that are blasting open old limitations so we can discover our naturalness, our infinite nature. When one is dancing in full love, we move with the rhythm of the entire cosmos propelling us through the galaxy with no time, speed, or agenda. There is something pure about this movement and when one is honest and transparent about how they would actually like to be moving in life then one is supported in ways beyond anything they can possibly imagine. One can only experience this when they take risks and step out of comfort to play in the realm that their heart desires. Play it safe in linear time where the masses seem to be withering away in spirit, OR, continue to take risks doing what the heart calls for that is enriching in each moment?

Ace of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Grace radiates the Ace of Cups. Nourishment on all levels of being are expressed fully in the present moment. One is radiating contentment and ease with life that is permeating through ones field in juicy and creative abundance. Filled with the spirit of love and not an ounce of conflict with what is. All that is arising in relationships, work, creative endeavors, health, and all areas of life are naturally flowing. This is giving tremendous space within to play in life. Originating from a space that feels clear and open. Full allowance of the divine play is fully present. One is moving with full trust in themselves and life and seeing/feeling all is Grace unfolding of ones existence.

Ace of Cups is the sweet nectar of life that is is pouring itself into you and you are giving birth to what you are seeing/experiencing. One is full of the pure energy of existence, a child’s essence with a mature depth and unending appreciation through experience of being. The one who has pulled this card has recognized their inherent freedom and the freedom of others and all of life that is present. When one pulls this card there is no wanting life to be manipulated in any way. There only remains a deep awe of all experiences and unfolding that have allowed one to be exactly as they are. When any subtle manipulation leaves the being there is an immense freedom which extends to all of life. This pure and untainted love moves in all areas of ones life, with a deep relaxation that allows creative freedom to abundantly flow in every aspect of being. This is not something one can try to do, but comes from life naturally stripping away what is not true. This frees up ones entire energetic field to dance in the same frequency as source energy without draining this natural energy we are all interconnected with. As one is in their natural state all things are birthed with this love and raw power.

This is a time where immense creativity is pouring through. Allow and let it be, whatever form it takes. Allow the natural play of what comes through to come through. Completely and wholly without judgment or fear. Whatever springs forth at this time is what is most sincere from ones being and will be a gift not only for oneself but for those who cross your path. The essence of what wishes to come through now is coming from not what you think you “should” do, but what simply has been dormant until now. Presently, enough space has been felt within your being to fully allow it to be birthed. The invitation is to say yes…and to trust your own voice and intuitive body when it comes to allowing this creation or movement to come alive.

.::.

Love is the essence of this card. A love untainted, it is pure and unconditional. As one is experiencing this within, naturally you will be attracting this same love within your relationships. One will be meeting or have already met a pure reflection of what is held inside the heart. Allow this love whether it be friendship or lover to expand reaching into the depths of your being. This love, when we are open, will expose dark spaces within us that are waiting to be seen. We don’t always know what is hidden within our being and often when we meet in love with another being we become mirrors for what is hidden to be seen and acknowledged. This is something that can be celebrated instead of hidden. This will only create more space for deeper love to be experienced within oneself, within relationship, and all of life. Although painful at times to go through it is only life breaking us open to discover more beauty and love within our being. The invitation is to allow the love to guide you even when the places you may go can be dark and sorrowful. Life is only reminding you to feel fully and embrace the totality of you and not only one spectrum of your being. The love that is experienced to such an incomprehensible degree with the Ace of Cups is because you have allowed the totality of you…to be. We aren’t here to only dance with the light, but to discover even greater depth within our challenging experiences. As we say yes to all that comes we are telling life we trust fully to all that is here.

Daughter of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Daughter of Pentacles depicts a delicate, but strong fawn about to embark on a new and unknown journey. She has a great deal to learn and explore, but it does not hold her back from being open to life. She may be young and a bit naive, but her childlike exploration and wonder of the world will carry her through all she experiences. She looks before her with awe and excitement, not fearing what she may encounter on her journey. She welcomes all that comes for her learning and expansion.

The Daughter of Pentacles asks what project or venture are we working on and how can we take the excited energy that is present to the completion of the project? The fire can wither away and turn into a distant dream if we don’t nurture this creative drive. This card is the energy around a dream that wishes to come into the physical realm. This card represents the beginning stages of the vision which contains a lot of energy, but will one allow this energy be sustained throughout the entire project or venture? If it is not nurtured, there will not be completion of the goal but an initial fire and then a decline of consistent energy. The invitation here is to take that present moment excitement and allow yourself to take practical steps everyday to work toward the vision. If something truly wishes to move through you in an authentic way, naturally you will invest time and energy daily to develop this project. Allow any fear of future outcome to fall away and be fully engaged with each action you put into your project. Allow yourself to disappear in the process, it will happen anyway if it is something that must move through you. This will create a vision of present moment pure love, no matter what the outcome of the project is. If one is only thinking of the outcome the process will be riddled with agitation and fear.

When we commit our loving energy to a creative project, work venture, or hobby, we are emitting a frequency of love and gratitude because we are investing our precious time into our gifts, talents, and authentic interests. When we allow ourselves to move from this space we will quickly find, (if one hasn’t experienced this already) all forces move to assist your genuine movements that are most natural to your being. There is an undeniable shift in the way you move and the way life moves with you. When we work or invest energy in places or with people that are not aligning with our energy we begin to deplete ourselves. The magic begins to unfold when we honor our heart and what naturally wishes to manifest within our being. This can happen very quickly if there is a true desire within to move in a direction that is in full alignment with our inner being. Our life can change dramatically like magic when we leave that which doesn’t serve our being. The Daughter of Pentacles asks, are we being honest and transparent with where we are investing our energy? Or are we moving out of fear and the fulfillment of false security? Daughter of Pentacles shows us its okay to be unsure and to still move in the direction of what sets our heart of fire. If we knew where we were going….this wouldn’t be that much fun would it? Lets embrace the mystery we are already living. Time to embrace not knowing instead of stressing out oneself to know.

.::.

This can be a time where an idea or vision comes and one has some of the skills and resources to begin where he/she can, but unsure about what can come with the venture. Daughter of Pentacles asks us to be in our boldness and to not try and have “all your ducks in a row” in order to begin. Just a reminder….no one has their fucking ducks in a row. Our visions and dreams come to us specifically for a reason, because we can carry them through into being. We don’t need to worry if we can “do it all” but trust that when challenges come we will learn new skills in appropriate timing or meet someone that can guide us further when we are stuck. The invitation is to continue forward with what excites, and to not settle for second best. We cannot wait to know everything in order to begin, we learn as we go and can relax in the process.

The Fool, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Fool, often misunderstood. Thankfully, The Fool doesn’t give a damn about opinion. He has one foot on a familiar branch and the other taking a step into the Great Unknown. The Fool is not concerned with what is to come or what has been. He lives in the moment and trusts completely. The Fool card is numbered as zero, ever present within the tarot. He has no specific order within the tarot and shows himself as unlimited potential in any direction. He is led by spirit that brought him here. The Fool has come into being to explore and learn without knowing what may come his way, but with full allowance of all that guides him.

.::.

The invitation here is that of trust. Trust what brought us here through all experiences that arise. The Fool is The Wild Unknown. He is innocent and open in each experience. He reminds us to give up our ideas, beliefs, and concepts of what should be, to allow life to be as it is without attaching false stories to what is. The Fool may be innocent in his appearance, but this does not mean he is not wise. He invites us to relax in our present moment freshness that is not tainted by past hurt. The Fool sees each experience as an new opportunity to live and love the sacredness of life in all forms that come. He invites us in unknown realms because he knows all is grace, even when the grace is fierce and painful. His attitude is Yes, allow me to see where I hold any limitation or fear within myself so I may walk in this life free and unhindered by self imposed limitations. He reminds us to not think we know everything and to revel and embrace uncharted territory within and without. If we think we know anything absolutely he reminds us that we block off discovering present moment beauty in the most simple way.

.::.

The Fool asks how do we hinder our own childlike innocence and exploration? Are we doubting ourselves and life as we move, or are we thankful for the miracle present now? As we relax into trusting life we open new doors of infinite possibility. We are not getting caught up in the mundane, but to the magic of life that is constantly inviting us to see in every moment. The Fool is one with the entirety of what is, therefore he does not doubt his experience of being. He invites us to take leaps of faith where there may be fear and to know as all is One we cannot go wrong when we trust in our heart and journey. Each unique embodiment of spirit has the opportunity to express itself fully in this life. The Fool asks if we can walk into our own heart and trust throughout all opposition that may come.

Four of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Absorbed in darkness, a rat rests atop four cups. Above him, a white light representing Pure Awareness & a crescent moon symbolizing intuition. Cups represent our emotional spectrum of being. Feelings, creativity, imagination, connections, love, and relationships with self and all of life. The rat is sitting on top of four cups being offered, but he is in the darkness. Four of Cups is asking if one is seeing what is here right now, or is one imagining themselves into the darkness? What are you not seeing that you already have? Are you being offered everything you need/want but cannot clearly see? This is a time that emotions are arising fiercely and a time to fully be present with them as they arise. When we take time to allow ourselves to feel what is, we will be able to truly see our present moment experience and all the beauty which is already present. In order for us to see our present moment reality we cannot ignore emotions that arise, we invite them in lovingly for they are wanting to be acknowledged. The invitation is to allow them to be felt fully and the being will naturally come into balance.

Sometimes we can miss the greatest gift that is with us all the time. We can wish or pine for things that are actually already here with us. When our mind and heart are divided we constantly see lack and that we do not have enough. When we are full of our own sweet nectar we see we aren’t missing anything and we are always divinely guided. We truly are seeing “outside” what we are “inside.” We don’t always want to say this is true because then we must take full responsibility for ourselves in a deep way. We can no longer blame outside sources for our suffering. In a way this is a great relief! Imagine if you had to fix everything outside of you?! What a freakin’ mess! Thankfully we have the opportunity to go inside ourselves and see where we hold resistance, be present with it and allow it to melt on its own accord. In one way we are responsible for the vibration we hold, but at the same time we see that all has been Grace sweeping through our house to show us the truth of our being, beyond limitations.

Four of Cups will come when there is dissatisfaction inside the being. One may feel as though there is something missing, or are not divinely guided. This feeling comes from an internal separation and cannot be satisfied by anything changed or shifted in the world. the change must come from our inner understanding. This can be a time where one has the urge to make drastic changes on the outside in order to feel differently. Four of Cups invites us to stay still. Before making any outside shifts in the outer world, take time to contemplate/reflect/meditate. Rest in your being and then see what changes occur naturally as you stay as awareness. The shifts that come from this space are always in alignment with your being. If one tries to change outside situation first, the internal peace will be temporary. Sooner or later the truth of dissatisfaction will present itself once again. We cannot avoid pain and conflict, we must face our darkness in order for any shifts to occur. We were built to have the capacity to hold space for this darkness. Four of Cups is an invitation to melt into your being and allow all actions to spring on their own natural accord.

.::.

The cups are here, abundance dripping all around. Somehow not being seen fully. There hasn’t been a full yes or full no to accept what life is presenting to you. There is a beauty being given to you because it matches your true vibration. Something within you is retreating out of fear. The invitation is that you are exactly where you need to be and you are being offered something rare and exquisite. You are on the right path, but you are blind because you are believing in doubts and fears instead of the truth of being. The cups are inviting you to drink from them and to trust life. Be fearless and say yes to what is here now. As we open fully to now, magic unleashes itself upon us. It has been here the whole time. As one resists, power is given to fears more than what is true. As you see through the nonsense you will see you are exactly where you need to be and your blackened cups will turn to liquid gold. When we see what is already present we stop taking life for granted and see the beauty in all that is.

Father of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Father of Pentacles is a regal, male deer. His antlers show the entire spectrum of rainbow colors. He has loved and continues to love the game of material success. For him it is a game, and one he plays with a blazing fire of enthusiasm. His worth does not stem from his material success, but he allows the game of creativity and money to be a joyful pursuit. Deeply, he knows his oneness with the universe is what allows him to play this game. First and foremost he is in alignment with this, then his play with wealth and life is tremendous fun and joyfully light. Energy emanates out from the single pentacle in between his antlers. He is so full of energy he is overflowing with abundance and sharing his internal wisdom, knowledge, and material wealth with all who are wishing to receive. He is abundant in all aspects and finds no use of it unless his wealth is shared among the people.

Father of Pentacles represents an abundant life. He has a secure internal foundation, creative ambition, discipline in his craft, and deep care for others with his guidance, wisdom, and financial support. The Father of Pentacles has the ability to turn all he touches into magic, this is simply how he is. He puts every ounce of his energy into what he does and that is why he does not fail. He has learned that when his heart is fully and absolutely absorbed in what he is doing there is no room for failure. He has failed enough to know that this is true. He joyfully continues on his endeavors with ease and grace. He is an inspiration to all whom he encounters because of the spirit in which he moves, his actions match his words and this makes many flock to him. Those who come across him listen carefully to all which he says because he walks his talk. There is something brewing in this card. Perhaps one has embarked on a business or creative journey and have succeeded. Or, one is currently investing energy into a project and will see the fruits of labor very soon. The Father of Pentacles invites us to allow every vibrating cell of our being into our creations with full joy.

.::.

The Father of Pentacles is asking are you putting every ounce of creative energy into what you wish to focus on? If so, there is nothing more to do. If not, then one must ask why? Why not put every fiber of ones being into what feels true and important? Is it because what is being focused on is not genuinely what one wants to be doing? Perhaps there is something deeper within you that wishes to give birth to creation? This question of why your energy is not invested fully in your endeavor can only be answered by you. There can be infinite amount of excuses we use about why we cannot do something. But all of theses things are simply excuses that keep us in a limited mindset. We are living on a yummy playground with infinite possibilities. The Father of Pentacles is inviting us to check in with our being. Are we jumping into our creative endeavors and projects fully? What about with life? We are already here, yet sometimes we tiptoe around the edges pretending we aren’t already in. We are here! What is the most honest and sincere way that one can continue in a way that is in full alignment with the sincerity of heart? We are the only ones that can listen deeply to the ways that wish to bloom within us.

Four of Wands, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Four of Wands reveals itself at a time of a deep joy that springs from a completion of a chapter in ones life. A new way of seeing coming into being. Something has been discovered which was masking clarity and true vision. A portal has been opened within ones being. What was once closed is now wide open and shining in a completely new way, touching dark spaces with renewed energy. The portal is seen through the wands cross that forms a diamond shape. Diamonds are strong and pure, representing the essence of our spirit before we place self judgement to cover up our being. What is the veil that has been lifted and how are you seeing in a brand new way? Something about this shift in perception has revealed a new way of seeing that cannot be discarded. A new reality is being experienced and this is a time where one is stable in listening to the voice of Spirit/God within them. The glowing shade of blue in the center of the card is the intuitive voice which guides us and the yellow/red bursts of color is the natural action which springs forth from this voice. As this portal is opened into our infinite nature we are extending freedom to all of life to dance in its brilliance.

There is an intuitive intelligence here. One that is infinitely expanding naturally. Life is expanding on its own and when we force or push our conditioned ways on life we begin to feel contracted. As we swim with the stream of life, the doors of infinity keep revealing more love and beauty to be seen. We discover ways in which we were closing the doors that were presenting themselves to us. The Four of Wands is an expansion where one is saying yes to life and allowing the invitation of the divine to take over completely. Whatever challenges have appeared within ones life are all seen as invitations to drop in completely to life as it is. This extends a massive feeling of gratitude within the being for all challenges that have been experienced and all challenges that will come.

There is an interesting and quite beautiful dance that is happening with the Four of Wands. There is an explosion of excitement and joy that is being expressed but beyond that is a silent depth is recognized that has given birth to this explosion. A peace and contentment is present and exciting adventure is simultaneously on the rise. Relationships, projects, creativity, and all that is engaged with right now will be emerging with fluidity and ease. There is a clarity in movement that is expressing itself in all areas of ones life. Communicating seems to come easier, working is joyful and doesn’t feel like work, there is lightness in how one moves from the body and into life. Weight that was being held has been discovered to be illusion and now somehow fallen away. An exciting time to feel weightless and free.
.::.
If life isn’t feeling light within the being, Four of Wands is inviting one to investigate the heaviness that is felt within. To not ignore the heaviness, but to open that door and acknowledge what wishes to be seen. Our pain is an invitation to extend more love, compassion, and gentleness towards ourself. If we resist/ignore our pain it strengthens and grows in power. The more open we are to looking at what is arising we are telling life that we are willing to be honest with ourselves. This honesty allows us to embrace all that arises and we learn more and more to extend love instead of judgement. Instead of perceiving problems as obstacles we extend freedom to ourselves and others to feel what is present in order to move through with all embracing arms. All is magick. All is love.

Judgement, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The white bird spans his wings of light above the darkness. Below him, bats are coming towards his light from the depths of the black abyss. The bird has no judgement for the darkness, he only invites the darkness to come towards the light. This bird embraces all who come from the darkness and the light.

.::.

Somethings magical occurs when we surrender judgement of ourselves. As we surrender our harsh judgements towards ourselves, judgements towards others also vanish. This leaves a great space within the being. There is a lightness that cannot be matched by anything else. It is the lightness of spirit that is felt because there is no longer empowerment of judgement towards self or “others.” When the judgement card is pulled the invitation is to ask, “Am I being to hard on myself? Am I being too hard on others? How does this make me feel?” There are times when we think being critical or judgmental towards others is helpful, but sometimes this assists in disempowering our brothers and sisters.  The question that is invited is what is more true? Is it the darkness that you may see in someone else or the divinity of them that is the essence of their being? When we focus on the divinity in ourselves instead of criticizing the darkness, it is the divinity that is given space to expand instead of empowering all the problems. The more we tell someone that we believe in them, how much we love and trust them the more we see them bloom, expand, and embrace their beauty. Can we do this for ourselves and others? To allow divinity to dance instead of watching it wither away? Can we notice in ourselves when judgement arises? Are we putting ourselves and other beings down instead of lifting up? We can cultivate healthy judgement by focusing on the good in ourselves and in others. Not to ignore the dark aspects of creation, but to recognize the beauty that is here and see the darkness present is also assisting our expansion. To focus on getting “rid” of the darkness will empower it to rise. As we empower strengths in ourselves and others we will see how quickly a true confidence emerges. A confidence that is not “Oh look at me” but more like “Yes, I can be myself fully.”

.::.

As we investigate more deeply to see where our judgement comes from what can we find? This judgement is coming with a rejection of what is present. Trying to change or manipulate a situation instead of seeing the inherent lessons in all that is arising. If we see every problem that arises as an opportunity for growth and greater understanding, harsh judgement of self and others will drop away. Opportunity will be seen clear as day where once there was conflict and frustration. Before we go pointing the finger at someone, it’s a good idea to look in the mirror. Find out if what is being judged is actually about the other, or, is it about you? Many times we will find the conflict is coming from our own perspective and the irritation that is felt is a natural alarm system to check in with our way of seeing. We can ask is what I’m seeing truly a defect of another or are they simply mirroring a way that I am viewing myself? Everyone is free to be as they are. As we condemn others in their freedom, we condemn ourself.

.::.

The Judgement card can come when you are seeing clearly how your actions, words, thoughts, feelings, vibration, and all that you are is constantly determining and shifting the quality of your life. Perhaps at this time a veil has been lifted that you had no idea was present. You are seeing all of life in a very new and fresh way. This could be a time where self judgement has dissolved in a major way and you are seeing the inherent beauty in yourself and all of life. This can cause for your reality to change in very dramatic ways….and very quickly. The veil that has been lifted has put you in complete alignment with your purpose, your passions, your visions, and all is flowing in the most natural way. This happens as perception aligns with your heart and you fall into the arms of the unknown. All of this is happening through Grace. This is not something that one can force to happen. Life will unveil the mysteries as we trust and allow ourselves to be available. This is the majesty and the beauty of the divine unfolding. As we trust, life strips us naked of our false illusions and judgement. We begin to see with the eyes of pure spirit.

Son of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Son of Cups is more mature than the Daughter of Cups with a depth of darkness and light that add to his character. The Daughter of Cups was in peaceful, illuminated water, while the Son of Cups has a movement drawing in an upward direction. This is showing a new chapter in life in a different direction that is stemming from what has been learned through his current experience. It is a new direction that comes from what he has bared witness to and experienced of light and dark. This new movement comes from wisdom that has unraveled over the course of his experience. The Son of Cups does not have the maturity as the Father, but has much more experience than the Daughter does in her sweet innocence. Different phases of life stretch our capacity in numerous ways and now is that of a growing phase for the Son. There is tremendous growth and depth, but not at the peak of maturity. The Son of Cups is at an exciting time shedding immense amounts of what no longer serves and highly sensitive to what does. So much so, that circumstances are rapidly changing to match the depth of what he is internally discovering.

Cups are linked with love and relationships, connections, and emotional well being. The cup in front of the swan is a combination of dark and light emotions at play. There is tremendous amount of heavy and light emotional energy bursting in this cup, but the Son at this time has the maturity to keep moving forward with grace. The Son of Cups is using this bubbling energy for creative thinking and momentum forward. Although there is some darkness in the cup this should not scare the one who pulls the card. We all have a depth of dark and light within and they can be harnessed and used in many creative and positive ways. How we perceive the darkness and light will determine if they will be used constructively or not. There is a good and healthy balance here that joins heart and mind energy. The Son of Cups is finding a better balance of intuition and logic combination. However, if he was pulled upside down it can mean the emotions are not being cared for properly and there can be movements that are hasty and overly emotional.

The Son of Cups emotions are very much concentrated within him. They are not expanding over the entire card. This energy is very much in the center of focus right now as he is moving from the inside out. He is introspective and allowing himself to feel the depth of the wide spectrum of his emotions. He is looking at triggers and paying attention to what feels healthy for him and what feels toxic. He is discovering illusions that have been deeply rooted and watching them fall away. There are many changes happening on very subtle levels. Ones he cannot entirely describe, but feeling completely and allowing grace to care for the changes. The invitation is to allow the exploration of the inner workings, but to not become self absorbed and narrow. Allow yourself to explore naturally, but do not obsess. This card can be equally as positive as it is negative. A good way to observe and see is how the inner/outer life is balancing. Is one paying attention to only inner and not practical life? This is something to be watchful of with this card. An invitation to learn from those who are the completely different from you is helpful, as they can have strengths you do not have. The invitation is to not neglect any aspect of self. As we connect more deeply with our naturalness all of these things begin to make sense and fall into their own balance, and that looks entirely different for everyone.

.::.

This is a time to investigate your how you genuinely feel. How are you taking care of yourself? Sometimes we take immense care in one way and completely fall off the wagon in another. The Son of Cups calls for balance in all aspects of life. Inviting sensitivity and compassion toward yourself and others now will make a world of difference. Whatever is being discovered, as dark or light as it may be can be seen in positive regard when we become honest and transparent with ourselves and take right action. With right action we will be guided in a direction that is in alignment with the highest good for ourselves and all of life. With right action use intuition, but don’t ignore logic and reason when they are useful. The capacity for all is there, use the balance of both as you move forward into unknown spaces.

Eight of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

A butterfly, tightly wrapped in itself hangs from a sword. She is surrounded by seven swords which are not touching her, but if she opens her wings would tear her to pieces. It appears there is no way of expanding. The butterfly is stuck and unable to open her wings in fear of what may happen. The energy of the card is frozen and unable to make any movement. The Butterfly cannot see as she is hidden within herself and this does not allow for even the slightest movement keeping her where she is. What is it that keeps the butterfly bound? Surely, there is a way to expand. What is keeping her from finding a way? Her sight is showing to be completely blinded keeping her immobile and fragile.

The Eight of Swords is inviting one to look at the current experience from a different angle, because the current way of seeing isn’t making any progress. Any feeling of being the victim of experience is what will keep one bound not allowing movement within the being or the mind to see other possible solutions for current experience. There cannot be any healthy movement when the belief of victimhood is at play. We remain blinded to the possibility of numerous options for ourselves. If there is a feeling of being stuck there is surely a victim role playing that is inhibiting one from seeing clearly and choosing a healthy option from the infinite options that are always available. It is only when we have created self imposed limitation that we feel as though there is no way out. Before taking any action we most remove our blindfold that keeps us small and limited so we can take right action and not action based on our perceived limitations.

There is a powerlessness present with the Eight of Swords. No where to move, no where to go. This is an illusion that has created a self imposed prison. There is no savior that can come from the outside to carve the way for us. This is a time acknowledge illusions and see how they have been at play. When these are seen one can step back into their own power and activate once again right choice and action from a healthy space. We always have choices and we always have options. When we feel stuck we have given up our power to an outside source. This is a time pay attention and to not ignore what is going on. Time to step into oneself acknowledging what has been ignored, neglected, or murdered certain aspects of self and regain strength once again. This will open up what has been a closed box and bring the breath of life, choice, right action, and vibrancy into being. It is a powerful time because coming out of this one will see they can never give up their power in this way again. As negative as this card feels it is truly a powerful time of immense transformation and growth when seeing through the veils of self imposed illusion.

.::.

As one becomes honest and transparent with what the current experience, this will open many doors. When we truly want to see our experience for what it is we will be able to see how our actions gave birth to our present moment experience. We are constantly saying yes and no to life which is opening doors and closing others. What is it that you would like to say yes and no to within your experience? Sometimes we can allow things into our life that isn’t healthy for our well being. When this happens this is how we learn to say no instead of yes. We are constantly learning, growing, and changing what we will allow into our lives as we mature. The Eight of Swords is saying be honest with yourself and allow what is healthy for you to be of high value. If you are being faced with a choice or a new transition in life allow what you value to be held highly so you do not entrap yourself in situations or experiences that are out of alignment with your values. There are no closed doors here even if it may seem that way. This is simply a time for realigning your values, honoring them and not settling for anything less. Allow your actions and movements to be honored by what you value most highly, and do not allow yourself to be swayed by those who oppose you. As ones heart is sincere and always open to learning and growing there will be others who do not agree with you. Let those who do not value what you value fall away and allow life to bring those that are in alignment with you to be by your side. At the end of each day if we feel we are making choices with honor and respecting ourselves and all of life as a whole, we cannot go wrong. Now is the time for a deep checking in and profound honesty with oneself.

Nine of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Nine of Swords is a card that brings up the question, “Is what is happening as bad as it feels, or am I contributing to the unrest, dis-ease, and anxiety, which is felt within? Is it really so bad?” Look honestly to see if what you think is causing you pain, or if the actual experience that you are presently in is no longer good for you. Making this distinction will clear up a lot of unnecessary pain. What is a real concern and what is a figment of the imagination? The Nine of Swords is indicating there is some great confusion that is unsure of what is imagination and what is really happening.

Nine of Swords addresses if any fears or expectations are being held on to which are disturbing the present moment beauty of all that is in front of you? Are you grateful for what you have, or always wanting more? As we investigate this sometimes we can see that perhaps we are putting too much pressure on ourselves and on life. Trying to make something one way instead of seeing the intrinsic beauty of how it is. As we create expectations on life we put major stress on ourself and life around us that creates a block for life to move naturally, and instead to force it in the way we think it should be. Instead of being one with the grand unfolding we say “No, I think it should be going this way!” Nine of Swords asks us should it really be going the way you think it should go? or, is life happening exactly as it should be? There is a difference between going with the flow as a dead fish and accepting anything that comes and going with the flow of lifes vibrancy, very different. Nine of Swords asks to discern in a way that is more objective or all encompassing. Take a step back to see a broader perspective of the present situation. Spend some time alone and inquire if you going with a healthy flow or one that is unhealthy for you? Is life revealing or presenting something new and exciting that may be covered by a fear of swimming into the unknown? Swimming in uncharted waters can always be a bit scary, but believing in the fear will guide us away from the magic that is constantly revealing itself to us.

This card can arise when negative self talk is perpetual, muddying up the entire experience and causing great confusion within. We cannot and will not always know what is the next best step to make or direction to move in. As we take the time to relax a bit and breath we can discover space within our being to see clearly instead of believing immediately the negative, internal monologue playing out. If you have made it to this moment and you are reading this, things can’t be that bad. You have your vision to see, your mind to think, your heart to feel. Up until now, hopefully, you have become more wise through experience. You have made mistakes and hopefully learned what you would not like to do again. You have learned to be more in tune with the entirety of your being which allows you to be connected with your inner intuitive guide as well as your logical mind. You have all the tools you need to get through any conflict that arises.

.::.

The invitation with such a gnarly card is to take time to meditate or take a walk in the park. To do whatever it is that puts you in a deep connection with yourself and all of life. Allowing the discontent , confusion, anger, or whatever negative self talk is present to leave your body. From this space ask “How have I engaged with life up until now? What ways do I wish to live, and what ways do I wish to never to tread again?” This is a good time to contemplate and reflect. First allowing yourself to truly come to the space of internal rest before even getting into these questions. We all have the capacity to ask ourselves these questions from an undivided mind/heart space, but we also must give ourselves the permission to take our time and calm down. One may not be able to do this at the drop of a hat. Maybe it will take one hour, 2 days, a few weeks, or a month to simply relax. It really depends on how entrenched one has been in the state they are in. However long it takes, self judgement in a self destructive way will not work here. Gentleness, Compassion, and Love will be most powerful in shifting gears. Turning to rest in your being allows the harshness to fall away. As this occurs the space opens for one to question themselves, their experience, what is true within the experience and what has been imagined to be true. It is much easier to do this when we aren’t asking these things from an already confused, angry, or fearful state. This can cause even more confusion on top of confusion. It is more than okay to take all the time one needs to nurture, love, and relax into the being before starting to ask questions. It is very different for each human being how to navigate the waters of life. Trust your own path and what you have experienced up until now. This will always be your greatest teacher. The more faith and trust one has within oneself the stronger one will be inside to move with great ease.

Ten of Pentacles, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Nine Pentacles are arranged in the shape of a diamond with one more pentacle almost invisible in the very center. This hidden pentacle is emanating rainbow colored, vibrant energy through infinite circles. It resembles our source energy and the power and infinitely expanding beauty of unseen powers. The Diamond is symbolic of wealth and abundance. It is an emitter of energy translating to one who is full and abundant to the point of overflowing in one or many aspects of life. Bursting with life force and having a tremendous amount to give. Pentacles associate with the outside reflection of consciousness in our physical reality. They reflect finances, work, health and creativity. If in this moment one doesn’t see how abundant these area in your life are, there is about to be a major shift in a positive direction to your unique soul path.

Completion of an exciting project, a happy home environment, solid finances, and overall improvements in your physical reality that are reflecting more of how you have wished to see your life, but didn’t quite know what to do or not do. Recently, there has been a consist moving in the right direction. Now there is a clear, expansive vision of how this consistency, passion, and energy, has all been focused in a way that is aligning a path with what you would like to express and see in your life. You are not bound by a victim role, you are an active participant in life and are seeing the fruits of your love labor. Because you have moved through many lessons swiftly, many doors have been closed behind you and many will continue to open up. The reminder with the Ten of Pentacles is to keep doing what you are doing, to keep being attracted to that which excites you, to keep on keeping on with the passion that is in your heart. Some may say its a bad idea to go in this way, “It’s not practical.” Thats right it isn’t always practical, it is the spice of life! The magic that allows one to create a unique and soulful path that feels entirely natural to that unique individual. We have our logic and intuition, we can use them both. We must not forget that we cannot ignore our most authentic callings. Ten of Pentacles is revealing that you have not been ignoring. You have been paying attention fully and following your internal compass. You have been heavily tested along the way to see how strong your faith is….good news… you came all the way through and you are still moving in the direction your heart leads. All of the tests are to ground you in your Self so you don’t go down some hum drum path that isn’t yours. It is life asking, “Is this what you really want? Or is there something deeper here that you are still hiding?” Ten of Pentacles indicates you are being completely honest with yourself.

Ten of Cups brings up family and friends. One is thinking of relationships with family/friends more closely giving more of themselves. Time and energy to support, nurture, and develop deeper bonds to those one values most. This creates an environment which love, trust, support is being extended and also received through the good and bad times. Ten of Pentacles extends to not only oneself but to family, friends, and all of life. Perhaps this is a time of sharing oneself and experiences more openly and transparently for others to gain wisdom from your experience. This is a time where one has such an abundance of love it feels as though it can reach every corner of the world. Ten of Pentacles is saying YES give when your cups is overflowing. Also to give wisely to those who have also supported you not only when you were beaming, but also in times where you were lost and confused. Those people in ones life that have showed up regardless of what time in your life you were experiencing are those who also deserve your love and nourishment. What a blessing to give and receive in this way that only allows for further expansion and love to be expressed.

.::.

Whatever you are focusing on right now if it hasn’t reached its full potential it is surely already happening. If one is working on a project the invitation is to continue with love and passion and you will receive what you have invested with your energy. If you are investing in a relationship, put in what you would like to see grow. All of your seeds that you are planting within you are showing you now that you are on the correct path. You have been listening deeply and are confident in your movements. Ten of Pentacles is showing how consistent, long term investment of your energy with Family, Friends, Goals, Projects, Business, Health are all worth your energy when genuine and full of love. You are thinking now from a broader perspective and see how each moment is precious and how you invest your time in all aspects of your life is important. The time to relax is now because you are and have been listening to your divine guidance and moving with grace and wisdom from spirit.

The Emperor, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Emperor depicts an evergreen tree. Tall, healthy, strong, and deeply rooted in the ground. Standing tall against a pure white background, the sun emitting a concentrated energy of light. Wisdom and experience go hand in hand with The Emperor. He is a strong and steady force that has gained tremendous wisdom through his journey. The Emperor is ruled by Aries fire. Representing strong will, determined action through focus, independent, and intelligent nature. The Emperor represents masculine energy, but does not necessarily come from a male. It is the masculine force that is present within oneself or another close in your journey. The Emperor has a strong passion for life and has energy for pleasant and beautiful experiences as well as the challenges life brings for the expansion and greater understanding. He sees challenges as continuous opportunities for growth and learning.

.::.

The Emperor extends his wisdom to those who come to him. He shares wisdom from his own life experience, not what he has heard or read about, but from what he has discovered first hand. He shares wisdom so that others may be able to offer up themselves as he has. The Emperor knows each human being has a gift that shall not die within them, but be passed down to future generations. He brings a sense of grounding to those who meet him. Although they can be going through hard times he reminds them of their own power and guides them to find the answers within themselves. A true emperor does not have those who come to him rely on him, but guides them back to their own source of wisdom which is the same from which his wisdom and guidance arise.

.::.

The Emperor has a way of seeing what his heart desires to bring forth in the physical realm and invests energy, passion, and full focus of attention in that direction until the idea that was once a seed fully manifests in his reality. He is not a dreamer, he is fully action oriented. He acknowledges how his dreaming has had its part to play in his experience and honors and respects that time. However, now he is a master at putting what he wants to see into action. Therefore, he is an inspiration for others to turn their dreams into fully coming to life. With each action, no matter how small or large The Emperor knows that a dream will come into full form when the focus is present. He does not make excuses. He simply uses all his resources and tools in order to embody the life he knows can be experienced. The Emperor does not let those who come to him think that what their heart wishes to express cannot be materialized. He knows each one has all the tools they need to express the divinity that wishes to emerge. Those who come his way leave inspired and know that they can do what they have wished. The Emperor is living proof of this. He is full force action.

.::.

The Invitation here is to embody the characteristics of The Emperor. Is one walking the path that is felt in the heart, or is avoidance still present? As we make space for what is important in our heart this aspect of our life continues to grow and develop. Something we once thought was impossible we now see is very possible. As we focus our attention on an area of our life, that area of our life will grow the amount of time we invest. The invitation is to start somewhere, if we haven’t already. What would genuinely like to be seen in our life that has been neglected or ignored? You know…those secret dreams waiting to emerge? There is an opportunity now to drink up the energy of The Emperor and know that what wishes to be seen in our life can be experienced. As we begin to see the fruits of our actions we begin to start abandoning that which doesn’t serve our highest good and allow ourselves to keep moving and expanding in the direction that is most natural to us. Are we expanding deep roots into that which we deeply love, or are we still doubting the truth of how we wish to express? The Emperor embodies an internal structure and stability that relies on no outside source other than self. He reminds us to always start from within as we move in this life. We have the internal stability with our connection as divine source that allows us to move in a way that is true and honest with oneself and all of life.

Six of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

In the darkness the Six of Swords are jumbled together. Above the darkness is a beautiful rainbow and pure light above. Daunting and bright simultaneously the Six of Swords is revealing that times have been testing and hard, but a great deal has been learned during this time to navigate in a new way and into the light. There has been trauma and pain experienced. This has led to a clearer sight of the direction to move in, but the there is some healing to undergo as one moves in a new direction. What experience is it time to move through or move away from completely? It may be a love relationship, a reoccurring self-sabotaging pattern, or anything that has caused more pain than joy. How can this experience be seen for what it is so one can move in greater alignment? One will either find a great ease and shift within the experience, or choose to completely leave the situation. It ain’t easy, but the newfound understanding will lead to more insight and a clearer path. It’s a pretty exciting time for this newfound clarity and movement.

The hardship that one has experienced may still be fresh inside the being. Even through the pain the Six of Swords invitation is to have trust in oneself through this time. We are always deeply cared for throughout the highs and lows. The invitation is to trust even more deeply and to move with what you know is healthy and true for yourself and your path. This is not a time to be influenced by what others may think, but to take into account everything you have experienced and what you will and will no longer accept in your field. There are times when what we have experienced has been painful, but also necessary for our growth and understanding of what is and is not acceptable. This is the time to take the highest road that only you in your heart can know.

.::.

Whether the hardship has been in business/creativity/love relationships/family life there is a big shift now. One has all the information needed to move forward to a new level of beauty in life. All the pieces of the puzzle are on the table. The use of logic as well as the intuition are equally important now. There are some times where we have the answers immediately and know what to do, this brings about swift and organic movement. With this card there has been some delay in what to do and with this has caused some temporary confusion. The invitation is to take a seat, feel and think the situation through and use both left and right side of your brain to go to town with this one. Look at what has been in front of you and look at the direction you want to go. Are you headed that way fully? If you are, that means that much has already been resolved. If you are not headed in the direction of most intimate alignment with yourself then now is the time to choose. Tick Tock. The time is now. There will be great relief with forward movement. Trust in yourself and your ability to choose the right action for your spirit to blossom even more beautifully. No need to doubt your decision. Everything is in front of you. All the messages in plain sight and through dreamtime have been clear.

Two of Cups, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Drawn are two white cups contrasting a black background with two red roses equally touching one another. The Two of Cups is not as strong of a card as The Lovers, however, it has infinite potential to go in that direction if both parties are willing to embark upon the depth of this journey. This card can indicate any kind of relationship, not only a union between to souls. It can indicate a partnership with ones work, the relationship with self and all of life, goals, creativity, friendships, and any aspect in life that one is presently united with. The cups are white indicating purity and innocence and the dark background indicates that many subconscious layers have been faced in order to reveal the purity and innocence of the white cups. Roses vibrate at the highest energetic frequency of any flower on earth. Roses remind us that within the fullest energetic capacity of our own being we can share this within a love relationship as we continue to be true to ourselves. If it is a project, goal, creative endeavor, work, or other union it is the possible to develop a genuine growth and bond in all areas. If one is moving in accordance with their unique path one will be in a strong union in all relationships that are present. At least, the potential is there. When we move from fear, selfishness, or greed in any way, our relationships will reflect this state. We are able to choose to move through these states if we have the willingness/honesty/transparency to do so.

Relationship with Self

Will always be the number one relationship.  As we continue our journey we have the beautiful gift of discovering ourselves and living in accordance with Spirit. Whether you call this Higher Self, God, Authenticity, or Being Yourself….its simply a different use of language to express our divine/human essence. As our relationship deepens with ourself we will see a depth of relationship around us that is showing us our own capacity of connection within ourselves. As we become more in line with our unique spirit our relationships will be in accordance with our vibration. People will come in and out of our lives as we are individually changing and growing. Long term deep relationships will continue to enrich our journey. Relationships will come together and fall away in natural ways as we are all on very unique paths learning specific lessons for our souls purpose/expression. The more we nourish ourselves from the inside we will be an emitter of energy instead of one who is only taking or trying to draw in energy from others/environment. As we feel full internally this will extend outward in our work, creativity, love relationships, and friendships. We are all doing the best we can. Two of Cups invites us to cultivate compassion and gentleness with each other when differences arise. When differences occur many times the answer is more love where there is frustration and confusion. As the compassion and love deepens for ourself it will naturally extend to others and all of life.

Love Relationship

Represented by the Two of Cups is an inspiring relationship that is equally fulfilling. Each partner is coming together with the intent to walk their individual paths allowing spirit to guide them while loving and supporting each other as they go. The lovers see that if they are each fulfilling their purpose/expression than their bond can move through the obstacles that come. Where the Lovers Card is more likely to be a longterm partnership the Two of Cups has less strength, but the possibility of strength The Lovers card has is still possible. The Two of Cups indicates that both individuals have the power to walk through the fire, but it may or may not happen within this partnership. All the inner spirit work that has been experienced by these two souls has been testing for both and much of their hurdles have been successfully overcome. However, they are still maturing in their being and may only be in each others lives for a very specific time. Either way there is tremendous deep inner work that has united these two for each one to expand tremendously. Each relationship is never wasted. Consciousness does not waste anything through experience. Learning is always occurring. Whether the relationships continues or shifts forms, it has changed each one to discover a deeper depth self.

Creative/Work Relationship

What is our Relationship with work and creation? The more we know ourselves we will stop leaking energy to that which doesn’t serve our spirit. We will stop working at jobs that drain our energy and we will start working and creating with what is purposeful and meaningful to our individual paths. The Two of Cups is a reminder if we are working/creating in a way that is not in alignment that we can create space everyday to work in the direction we would like to see expand. When we create space for what is in alignment for our unique path we naturally are inviting in a new direction. Perhaps you cannot leave your job today you don’t fully love, but maybe if you put an hour aside a day to what you love this energy will keep expanding until transitioning fully to work and create in accordance to your hearts truth. We are all unique and what is good or exciting for one is not good and exciting for another. Two of Cups asks us if we are nurturing our work/creativity in a genuine direction? Or do we still think it is impossible to do what we love? Two of Cups says there is always a way to nurture our work/creativity each day, even if it is for 5 minutes. As we do this, we will see how this expands over time. We will see and feel the fruits that come from our energy investment.

The Hierophant, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Hierophant is raising the unconscious to the conscious. He signifies bringing ancient universal wisdom and knowledge among fellow humans. The card embodies wisdom, unlocking great potential, right action through experience/understanding, and depth of sincere commitment in all aspects of life. If the Hierophant is not describing yourself it means that guidance is on its way. Something which is out of your sphere of knowing will be presented. The Hierophant is an invitation to go within and seek the answers you need or to seek a guide that could assist you. Right action that is expressed here is not only for the one pulling the card, but right action for everyone the card holder impacts. The invitation is to think on a global scale than only a personal way, which can be limiting and single minded. The Hierophant is a card of the bigger picture, not only the individual one.

.::.

Is there a battle between your spiritual knowledge and what is right for you? Is there a contradiction that has a missing element? This is a time to delve into what you think is true and reinvestigate beliefs or philosophies that might be outgrown and no longer serving the highest good. The Hierophant is a card to remind us to never stop learning and expanding and questioning what we may think is true. Sometimes as we come to conclusions in life or belief systems we become trapped in false ways of thinking that are no longer relevant in our lives. There is always a more subtle, and deeper depth to discover. These water are infinite. Life is always fresh when we have a childlike wonder that always is open to find out why. The Hierophant asks us to remember our childlike ways of learning so we don’t become stuck in certain ways of thinking/being that make us stagnant in our own lives.

.::.

The Hierophant card can also show a current or future relationship of a deep spirit based love connection. Someone who you can evolve with and bring the subconscious to light within each of you. This partnership will be the meeting of the divine to express the work that needs to be done through both of you. You are both open to being clear channels for divinity to work through you. There will be an immediate connection upon the meeting of both souls that recognizes the depth of a true connection felt. Each partner will be exposing in the other that which was still hidden inside. Because there is a willingness to be open to each other and to life there will be immense fire that burns through illusions and old karmic wounds. There is a unique potential to unite in sacred consciousness opening yourselves to be gateways for the divine to express itself on earth. If each one can allow the flow of grace, love, and genuine understanding there will be tremendous growth and sacred unity within this partnership.

The World, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The World. For myself the drawing looks like an eye. A white inner circle signifying clarity of vision, surrounded by a black abyss with 6 flowers rotating in harmony around the ring. The next layer is one of snake skin, reminding me of the serpent biting its own tail symbolizing infinite wholeness. The outer ring is rainbow colored encompassing the entire spectrum of colors we experience in our lives. There is balance, peace, expansion, and wholeness present. The background shows the light of day and the dark starry night reflecting the embodiment of the shadow and light of our own being. Such depth and beauty of oneself exists not because we deny one or grasp another, but because we see how both light and dark are serving our highest expression of being.

.::.

This card is a reflection of living fully. To learn, grow, and discover our depth of being is the greatest gift of this life that is revealing itself each glorious day. Through our darkness we are delving deeply into the subconscious abyss of the layers that wish to be recognized and brought into the light. As we continue our infinite journey and delve into the galaxies of our being we become more open to uncovering ourselves through our dark experiences finding that the exposure of these aspects ourself are not to be feared. They can be held and seen as they merge with our light. The World card is signifying a maturing and depth that has come from all that has been experienced and a completion of a cycle that has given birth to a greater understanding of oneself.

.::.

At this time one is in harmony with seeing/feeling “I’m exactly where I’m suppose to be.” This is a powerful place to move from as we see nothing is a mistake and all that is occurring within the human experience is assisting our learning. One innately feels that he/she is moving in accordance with all of life in all aspects of being. Challenges that come at this time are embraced with more compassion, love, and understanding now and this allows for a graceful, fluid movement in ones journey. There is a deep shedding of doubt and uncertainty as the power of trust is embodied fully at this time. There has been much exploration and discovery that has opened up into a fulfillment of a purposeful forward momentum. A completion of a childlike cycle is coming to a close, keeping the wonder of a child but embodying a deeper and more mature understanding of ones true nature.

.::.

Genuine passions, interests, gifts, obsessions, are now seen fully and are expressing through ones being more freely than ever before. There is a connection of all those weird interests that one is drawn to and they are all working together in harmony to be nurtured, developed and shared with more than just oneself. There is a deeper understanding here of why we do what we do. We all have gifts that will kill us slowly if we don’t express and share them. Imagine a musician hiding the way his soul sings and plays music? We must express our being and this changes over the course of our lifetime. The World card is a recognition that yes you are using your gifts and they are expanding and being shared more openly and will continue to bloom. The World card comes when we are excited, full, whole, and content with our process while we continue to learn, grow, and expand with all of our experiences.

Two of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Two crossed swords below the moon eclipsing the sun. The light is still showing around the ring of the moon, but it is quite a small expansion of light. There is a decision to be made and there has been a long delay in the decision making. Two of Swords indicates you may not have all the information you need to make the right decision. Instead of avoiding, this is a time to make a decision with careful thought and honest intention. Pay attention to what is really in front of you. This approach at this time must be seeing the situation as it is rather than seeing what you would like to see. One must lay all the cards out on the table in order to make the best decision. Any avoidance of the decision to be made will only make it more difficult to choose as deeper confusion will make its way inside.

If one can take an objective standpoint from the situation and address a broad view of the current experience there may appear a better choice for what the next best way to navigate is. However, there may be pieces of information that the card holder is entirely unaware of. This means there is more of the story to unfold before the right decision can even be clear. Whether one has all the pieces of information they need or not, it is important to pay attention to the current experience and to make a decision the best way possible. Although the moon is eclipsing the suns light, there is still light shining through which is indicating one can still make a decision to their capacity of understanding with the information present. With an open heart and pure intentions and motives there will not be a wrong step. If there are more pieces to the puzzle to be revealed, in time they will be and again you have the option to choose and navigate according to the new insight revealed. We are always learning and growing, being hard on oneself will only bring doubt into the being which delays the process of choice.

Sometimes there are times when we have come to a standstill in what to do and simply are not sure how to move. Instead of delaying and avoiding the next step, reach out to someone who can be trusted and objectively point out that which may not be obvious to you. Sometimes where there can be a stagnancy present, it is wise to seek counsel. As we are directly in the experience it can be very difficult to see an element that another can see clear as day. Family members are not the best at this time to ask for guidance unless they can truly be objective. Perhaps a loyal and trustworthy friend, a counselor, or a wise person that can look at the whole picture and tell you what they see. Maybe you don’t take what they say and run with it, but perhaps it can open a whole new world you haven’t seen. Within a very short time complete clarity can be recognized after a quick conversation with another. They see something clearly because they are not personally in the situation. Whether inspired by someone else or not, ultimately the decision must come from your heart.

.::.

Two of Swords invites us to not put any decisions off and not to avoid what must be looked at. Whatever aspect of ones life this may be, it needs your present moment attention. There will be a great burden released when we address what must be looked at more deeply.

Ace of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Nothing can stand in the way of the Ace of SwordsThe one who chooses this card is at full power and energy right now. The question is will the energy be used to benefit the greater good? It is up to the one who holds the sword to use it in the highest way. The work that must be done is beyond the individuals life and calls upon this being to step up for the whole of humanity. The white sword depicted is pure and true, reflecting a higher choice of how to use ones energy. There is a rainbow infinity sign wrapped around the sword symbolizing what must come through this being ripples out infinitely to all of existence. This is stepping into our roles that not only satisfies our personal life, but the divine work we came here to do. Our true work that we must wake up to within this lifetime. The lightning bolt that strikes on either side of the sword signifies a clarity that comes quickly and powerfully. One is seeing what their work is with a deeper understanding than before. But just as quick as lightning and clarity come they can also disappear. Whatever insight comes at this time can be written down to help absorb its power. This is not a time to to forget what one has realized, but to allow what has been seen to be absorbed to its fullness before it is forgotten.

As clarity comes, action is birthed. When one sees the direction that is right and true the limbo stages are over. There is no more waiting, there is no more uncertainty within the being. There is recognition that Yes, moving forward with this clarity is absolutely in alignment. This new understanding is so clear that the one who bears the sword is willing to overcome the double edge that is present. There are people who will be against and for the journey this one is living.  There is an undeniable new understanding which has been brought forth about the next step one must take and it is crystal clear. The strength is also there to bear disagreement and opinions from others and to stand firm in the way you tread fully. When deeper understanding comes for a new direction, a goal, project, or vision, there is an energy that supports it fully because one is inline with all of existence. This will be undeniably obvious as one continues on the path, as this path will be fully supported. The movements one makes will not be because of material gains or status. The movements made will be pure spirit moving through the being to express the work of the divine. This support is much more powerful than those who put you down. Those who put you down will only strengthen what you know to be true in your heart and you will continue with Grace as there are a deeper depths to your movements besides what others may think or not think.

Ace of Swords asks to step fully into gifts, talents, abilities, and gather all tools and resources to continue on the journey the heart is uniquely designed to experience. There is no one foot in water and one on land. Full merging into the divine waters. This is a direct and immediate power that has no time to wait. Life is happening now and there is no more time to delay what must be birthed from ones being. We are asked to embrace our divinity and humanness to the fullest. To see fully what has wished to move through us is now either happening or going into hiding. It is up to the one who bears the sword with all or nothing energy. To run with the wolves or fall back into hiding. We have the free will to go either way. But what stops us from rising above the mundane? We are given our gifts for a reason. We must not let them die within us.

Seven of Swords, The Wild Unknown Tarot

Six swords above the fox, one hidden underneath him. The Fox is known as the trickster. This is a time we are asked to pay extra attention where we may be deceiving ourselves, or someone close to us may be deceiving us. This can be something we may feel, but are not certain about. We are invited to draw on our resources of discernment and increase our awareness of a situation we are currently in. Paying attention to dreams can be very revealing at this time, showing us what we may not be able to see in our waking state. Seven of Swords calls for swift and immediate action on a situation. The power of this card is immediate and invites us to wake uppay attention, and act now. Choices, friendships, relationships, work, and our individual paths are at the forefront of awareness. Is there a need for immediate change or action in any of these areas? Seven of Swords calls to bring out the seventh hidden sword from under the fox. What is being hidden in an area of life and how can we bring the truth of the situation to light?

       There is a great deception in this card. Are these your actions or someones actions close to you? This is the first thing to discern. If the actions that are deceiving are upon yourself this is the time to acknowledge this and reflect on how this has been self inflicting pain upon oneself to change old ways. We have the opportunity to create a different world for ourself when we learn from our mistakes. The deception in this card can also indicate another in your life. Perhaps the actions of this person have gone unnoticed in many ways and they are now being seen by you more clearly. There is an effect with the choices that we make in life and that others close to us make. What is it about the current circumstance that does not align with your values? Whether it is you or another involved there is a choice and conversation that must be made. This situation one is experiencing must be communicated and looked at with complete honesty. This is not a time to run or turn away but bring out everything on the table, either for yourself or within another relationship. Honesty and Transparency will triumph here.

       How have you affected others in your life and how would you like to continue effecting others? This is a time to look at the past and see how you have tread and think how you would like to continue walking your path. The people in your life, are they on board with you or is their value system different than yours? As we grow and learn in life most often relationships fall away that no longer match our values and what we hold as sacred in our heart. If we remain around those who are no longer in alignment then we are not placing honor on our sacred values. We are not living with integrity. Seven of Swords leaves us with big choices because they are life altering on our path. The question is what is not just serving our personal interest, but what feels most honorable and true on a universal scale? When we begin asking questions like this we are no longer thinking about only ourself but about our friends, family, and the world at large. We become an extension of humanity as a whole instead of individual ways of thinking that can be only self serving at times. We must learn from our mistakes and learn from others so we can always be moving forward in a more positive light. If we aren’t learning from what we do and what others do we will become stagnant and stay in one frame of thinking. This can be paralyzing on many levels. We are designed to keep learning, expanding, and growing.

Seven of Swords is as equally about your actions as it could be another relationship in your life. As you honor your path ask if you are being swayed in any way that does not align with your soul path. There are people in life with unconscious intention of how they tread in other peoples lives. As we learn and see our own unconscious patterns we become more aware of others as we have stepped out of our own charades. So the evidence of others manipulation or deception becomes more obvious. Many times these deceptive ways are unconscious in the one doing it, but if we see something. It is our responsibility to speak up and to use our voice. This is how we share with each other and extend the opportunity to learn. We cannot change someone but maybe we can communicate something they do not see. Whether they wish to recognize it or not is up to them. Seven of Wands asks us to be cautious at this time. If you are deceiving yourself and can recognize it, this makes much easier to see and change. If it is in fact a relationship you are in, this will can be more challenging to discern. Our gut instincts are not always correct, but many times are and this is one of those circumstances that it is valid to pay attention to your initial gut response. Also to contemplate the actions, communications, and experiences that have occurred during this time. Sometimes we know an answer already, we just haven’t acted upon the evidence that is already in front of us. 

.::.

       The invitation of the Seven of Swords is swift action. The time is now to pay attention. The statement…The easy road isn’t always the best road comes to mind. Sometimes we have to take the more difficult decision to continue on our journey. From a broader perspective it will serve a higher purpose. If there is not clarity how to navigate the current experience take time to meditate, take time to think and write, whatever helps you see more clearly to assess the current unfolding. Sometimes sharing with someone helps if they will not be biased to the situation and evaluate all sides of the situation. That is hard to find, but an outer perspective can always give a helpful perspective. Sometimes a person outside the experience can see obviousness in what we cannot.

The Lovers, The Wild Unknown Tarot

The Lovers, Two geese flying in harmony with each other while simultaneously on their individual paths. The geese have tremendous instinctive power and navigate long distances with content and bravery. They remind us to harness our intuitive strength while continuing on our journey and mission. Geese remind us to move courageously on our soul path and to not compromise our deepest hearts desire for something lesser. The Lovers know they each have their work to do and must honor and hold in integrity with their own work while merging together. A light blue hue is emanating from above the birds as they fly, giving the feeling of expansive and calm energy. This connection depicted is one of a deep union and signifies a bond on many fundamental layers of being for the two interconnected. The Lovers have the ability to fly in life together overcoming any obstacle that they encounter. Their bond travels deep as it is a divine union. Life brought these two together to assist the awakening of different aspects of each ones being. This relationship evokes each others subconscious, bringing that which must come into light. The sexual bond they share is other worldly. It is not a union for only physical gratification of the earthly realm, but a deep-rooted energetic connection that unites The Lovers beyond the body/mind.

.::.

The Lovers card brings Choice and Action to the forefront. There is a decision coming, or one that has already come into focus. In The Fools card there was no right or wrong answer to be made, the fool was at the beginning of his journey and at childlike stages of learning. The Lovers card is a mature card, one with more understanding and experience than the fool. The decision will change the course of the path for each individual as the decision made within the union effects the relationship as a whole. There is a blessing in disguise with the choice that is made. The decision will make a dramatic shift to ones course and direction. An invitation for meditation, reflection, and contemplation is called for now. Thinking about past actions and reflecting on life until now. It is a perfect opportunity to look at past lessons and how one has learned and matured through experiences. The current time is calling to see what you have really learned. Transparency and honesty with oneself will allow an answer to be seen with greater ease.

.::.

Examining how we feel and our motivation within the options available can give us more clarity towards the correct choice. The maturity of the card shows the querent is at stage of life where there is enough wisdom and inner resources needed internally to make a clear decision. The Lovers card is not always speaking of two, but also about the union with ourselves. It is allowing the many layers of our being to work in harmony to lead us in the right direction. This card is a stepping up into all the understanding, knowledge, and life experience one has been graced with along the way. As we tune into our natural power and do not murder any aspect of ourself by way of denial, the right choice becomes more visible. This is a time for slowing down and not rushing to come to an answer quickly. Allow The Lovers to be a reminder to allow the love of ones soul purpose to guide the way.

Strength Card, The Wild Unknown Tarot

A Lioness, with a rose gently held in her mouth. On her forehead rests an infinity symbol. A peaceful energy exudes from her presence. This card reminds us to draw on our inner strength that can navigate us through the darkest waters and turn them clear. Our true strength is tested when we are faced with challenges inside ourselves, and with others present in our life. The Strength Card is the embodiment of an unwavering power that can move through all obstacles with patience and calmness that soothes the most ferocious waters. This card represents the human spirit overcoming all obstacles when drawing on this strength we all have within us. As one pulls this card there is a deep maturity that has occurred withins ones life in order for this subtle, yet tremendous power to be present. This strength is not always visible to others and doesn’t need to be. It is a quiet current with immense power underlying its purpose & movement.

.::.

The Strength Card is a reminder to allow compassion to move one through the obstacles that arise. This is not a time to be forceful with situations unfolding. There are times where we must take deep breaths and take our time before opening the doors of a situation that is occurring in our life. It is wise to dive in when one is drawing from their inner strength with a compassionate heart to discuss a sensitive matter. When we move from this space it is possible to move mountains. Whereas if we move from an overly emotional state we can actually cause more pain to a situation instead of meeting it in a constructive, open, loving, & compassionate way. True strength can be holding space for ourselves or a loved one when going through deep hardship. Strength can be speaking the words that are in our heart as mindfully as we can without lashing out at another. Strength is navigating in ways that are least destructive and most sincere and honest. We can create a safe and loving environment for ourself and for others where trust can grow, allowing that which needs attention to come to the surface.

.::.

The Lioness has been learning through experience on her journey that her strength is deeply present when she doesn’t feed the negative emotions that arise. She has learned that she has a choice of what she can feed in her life, not only mentally, but on every aspect of her being. Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, she sees how connected each aspect of her being is and how true strength is discovered when she allows all of these aspects of herself to be fed daily. The Lioness is not waiting for anything to happen to her. She sees she has all the tools she needs within and she moves from this space of fullness. This allows her to be free from victimhood. Her strength is in herself and nothing outside of her.

.::.

The Strength Card can come during a time where one can be feeling in complete harmony with all of life and persevering through obstacles with great ease. The strength card can also come at a time when you are in the midst of a conflict with yourself or perhaps someone around you is in conflict. This is a time to draw on your internal resources that have deepened in maturity over time. It is a time to take responsibility for yourself and what you are seeing occur in your life. If it is another person going through something this calls for an unwavering patience that creates trust and support between you both. Ultimately, we can only show up for ourselves and others within the the capacity and depth we have reached within ourselves. Life will always be pushing this threshold to expand us into further understanding and depth. We can go so far to reach out to another, but they must be open and willing to meet us for true change to occur. However, we are all unique and learn different lessons at different times. Nothing can be forced. We cannot force each other to learn or see. These things can only take place by individual experience and an openness to discover something more deeply. The Strength card requires a delicate balance within oneself and ones environment to move in a way that empowers life to bloom and uses strength wisely out of compassion and sincere love.
